“Great time at Super 8”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2011

My family has been going to this Super 8 for years for our annual ski trip. I've stayed at other places prior and I've found the Super 8 to be the best value. Rooms are clean, service is friendly, price is great. Kids love the pool, hot tub is nice and big. Unlike other places where the hot tubs can be small. The continental breakfast is nice too. Located close to downtown and in between Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands. Look forward to staying there again next December. I give the Super 8 10 out of 10.

Let me say something... I stay at hotels all the time, expensive ones because I am an Executive on an expense account so I stay at Westin's etc... I stayed here with my 2 little kids because we were visiting a friend over Labor Day Weekend. Even my 2 little kids at a high level of skepticism when I said we were staying at a Super 8 (sorry Super 8). NOT THIS ONE! This was the cleanest hotel I ever stayed - it was amazing. I just had to mention it to the Mgr! The B-fast was very good too and the staff ever so friendly. I don't usually take the time to rate stuff but just had to because they deserve it.

We have stayed at this hotel on many occassions. Never one time on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the highest) would we have rated our entire stay from check in to check out less than a 10. Dan Grangood the manager should be voted the Hotel Manger of the year for ALL hotel chains. He and his staff have always gone beyond what you would expect to find in great hospitality both at check in and each time you leave or enter the hotel. The rooms are always very clean and in great working order. The breakfast is always good and the dining area is always exceptionally clean with a bright smiling hostess (many times including Dad himself making sure you are happy with everything).

Room Tip: Whether a one night stay, or an entire week of vacation, Manager Dan Grangood and his staff will mak...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2011

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend on a trip up to Mackinaw City, and although a bit expensive for a Super 8, we had a good experience. The staff behind the desk were unusally friendly, and very helpful with some questions we had. The beds were very comfortable, the room was clean, convenient to the breakfast bar, which was great, and it is USA owned. We will not stay at any properties that are not, due to some previous issues, so we call ahead first. I will stay here again if we are ever in the area.

PROS:
I chose this hotel for our family because many former reviews said it was clean. We did find this to be true and it is often not true of hotels in this price range. The rooms were actually more spacious than most higher priced hotels. You won't find a lot of frills here, but you will find all of the basics you would expect. The pool was average size for an indoor hotel and was clean. The free breakfast quite good as free hotel breakfasts go and was very well stocked all the way until closing time at 10am. Kids loved the belgian waffles. The staff we encountered were all great. Parking is close to building. Quick 5 minute drive to downtown Petoskey.

CONS:
We got a 'Bay View" room on the highest (second) floor as requested but the view was mostly blocked by a continuous tree line between the building and the lake. Didn't bother us since we booked this less expensive hotel as mainly a place to sleep. Hot tub in pool area looked less than fully clean. Beds could have been a bit more comfortable but not bad. No elevator to second floor - didn't bother us but may be an issue for some.

Room Tip: See comment above regarding

This was our first time to Petoskey and we were coming for a family get together. This wouldn't have been our first choice for a place to stay. Having two shady characters hanging at the front desk (we think were the clerks friends) was a little off putting. The rooms were just o.k. The only positive thing was they were clean. If you have people going in and out of their rooms all night like we did u will hear it because the walls are so thin. The hotel is in a great location so if they would update the rooms it would be a better hotel.
